Abstract: While research exists on knowledge transfer in the private and public sectors, there is limited understanding of such efforts in higher education. Universities interested in serving society beyond academic curricula often develop outreach programmes that lack a significant societal impact. We present an alternative model developed at the Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudio Superiores de Monterrey in Mexico (Monterrey Tech). This school has created a comprehensive structure designed to transfer knowledge from the university to the community and back. Monterrey Tech's model presents an institution-wide effort aimed at developing students' sense of citizenship while transferring knowledge that addresses societal needs.
